Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 681635
Entering multibyte characters as a username results in a vertically displayed name, messed up UI, upon login
Last modified: 2015-02-01 18:26:52 EST
Description of problem:
We can create users with multibyte characters just fine, and these users can login. However, when they are logged in, the characters are displayed vertically in the headers, instead of horizontally. This results in a warped UI
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Admin > Users > New
2. Create a user with a login of "我很喜欢吃水煮鱼"
3. Logout; attempt to login as user "我很喜欢吃水煮鱼"
The login name is displayed in a vertical column on the right-hand side of the page. This ends up warping the header UI components.
Need to display these vertically.

Do we definitely want to support multi-byte character usernames? Because, if not, the fix here would be to change the user creation form to only permit ASCII characters in usernames. Assigning to Charles so he can comment.
